Hi I'm new to this forum and scheduled for a TKR in three weeks.
I've had numerous ligament reconstructions and preety much all my cartilage removed from one knee following a sports injury when I was 19. Now 66, I've been bone on bone for eight years but currently manage to walk around four miles a day.
I am not pain free and the slightest slip can cause my knee to flare up to the point where I can't bear weight for weeks. It was after such a flare up that I decided the time had come to go on the waiting list and get a new knee. Six months on, and with no recent flare ups, I'm starting to feel a few pre op jitters.
I'm pretty active and love sea kayaking.
Any thoughts? Positive experiences of returning to activity after TKR especially welcome. Also any tips to aid recovery.
